Magnus in Hildaland
Beheading is for the looting smug.
Lifolf, pal, strike me on the head.
I know it's on Hakon's behalf.
I would've taken pilgrimage,
poked-out eyes, mutilation, exile,
no. Dragonlike, I should be slain.
I kneel before you, go ahead.
I will heal William the Old
and spark in consecrated fire.
A bank of fog envelops my skull.
The scar disappears. Miss Flake
is my interpreter. She used to be a fin-
wife's black cat, now she's the slimy
Messenger of Hidden Land. Decorated,
promoted, her sheen comes from
ground-up pearls. She flounces
against my chest. The might of Teran
whips the seas up into boiling froth.
